Obama keeps NAFTA pressure on Clinton
by Mike Dorning
I have often said that if you wait long enough, there will be something that two opposing camps can agree on. Hillary Clinton and I do not see eye to eye on much, but when she gave her "Celestial Choir" speech the other day, we finally found our common ground!
It has been one year since I posted my first piece, Déjà vu: It’s 'Smokes for Votes' all over again! , on Brookfieldnow.
So, what has changed in that year?

Today is February 29th, a leap year. My son mentioned a classmate of his told him he had a leap year birthday. Poor kid, in actual Feb. 29th birthdays, today is this young man's 5th birthday. It could have been worse though. Had he been born a century earlier, he would have had only 4 actual Feb. 29th birthdays. How would that be possible for a 20 year old? Ask Pope Gregory.
Back in Julius Caesars day--45 BC--the concept of adding a day to the 365 day calendar every 4 years was introduced. It was known that an actual year was almost 1/4 day longer than 365 day year. So to compensate, Caesar added the leap year day to his Julian Calendar. This worked for a while.
